"Rats given sweetened water in experiments find it significantly more pleasurable than cocaine, even when they’re addicted to the latter, and more than heroin as well." Gary Taubes, The Case Against Sugar
Many adults eat much more sugar than necessary, so reducing added sugar intake is a healthful idea for most people. Some people may wish to take it a step further and cut sugar out of their diet entirely.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that adults in the United States get about 15% of their calories from added sugars alone. This sugar intake does not even include natural sugars, such as those in products such as fruit and milk.
Excessive sugar consumption has links to several harmful health conditions, including:
obesity and metabolic syndrome
type 2 diabetes
high blood pressure
nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
dental plaque and cavities
Reducing the amount of sugar in the diet can help a person reduce their risk of these health conditions.

Dill is a powerful essential oil for feeling “full” after a meal. The problem with sugars and carbs is that they make us feel more full compared to, say, a kale salad. Dill makes your healthy meals and snacks feel more satisfying because it stimulates the brain's satiety center!

I'm Marie. I am a believer, wife, mother, and grandmother. Welcome to my space where we pursue natural wellness, chase freedom, and build community all from a faith standpoint.
I believe midlife brings all sorts of new challenges but also many blessings. Our ideas about wellness, freedom, and our community can change as we age, mine certainly did. It's my hope that I can share an idea or two about facing these changes with a more natural approach.
I believe midlife women are also interested in new ways to diversify their incomes. Around here we share authentically about chasing freedom while building a community of like-minded women who are ready to change their health and ultimately their lives.
I hope you decide to be a part of the informed, savvy, beautiful healthcare of the next generation.
